Mechanical forces play an important role in proper embryologic development, and similarly such forces can directly impact pluripotency and differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells (mESC) in vitro. In addition, manipulation of the embryoid body (EB) microenvironment, such as by incorporation of microspheres or microparticles, can similarly influence(More)

FabH (Fatty acid biosynthesis, enzyme H, also referred to as β-ketoacyl-ACP-synthase III) is a key condensing enzyme in the type II fatty acid synthesis (FAS) system. The FAS pathway in bacteria is essential for growth and survival and vastly differs from the human FAS pathway. Enzymes involved in this pathway have arisen as promising biomolecular targets(More)
